I usually avoid having too much negativity, negative reviews on my blog, but sometimes I guess it' must be helpful for someone, so I decided to share with you my experience about this Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation primer:
|Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer|
Ok, I got this as a part of the SmashboxTravel kit (you can read my post __ Here) and so I'm happy I didn't pay full price for this primer.
From the product label:
"Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend with vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, our best-selling primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for a velvety-smooth finish" __ Sounds like a dream, doesn't it?
Well, now let's go back to the reality:
This transparent, gel-y primer is very thick. It doesn't feel bad while applying, actually, but few minutes later you realise that something heavy is sitting on your skin and doesn't let it breath.
As you may remember, I have dry skin and this Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation primer made my skin look 20 years older and cakey. It looked horrible with my regular liquid foundation, and even worse __ with the powder.
I used this Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation primer several times, just to make sure it wasn't worth to keep it and every time I used it, I felt like it clogged my pores and suffocated my skin.
I'm glad I didn't pay full price $36 which is ridiculously expensive for this product.
